Abbie’s passion for makeup originally started out (as with so many of our students) as a hobby, but later led to her studying at SRA several years ago.
Abbie has worked at MAC as a retail artist, also running the Smashbox Pro Store. In 2017, she was nominated as New Zealand Makeup Artist of the year. Abbie has had her work published in Remix Magazine, Black Mag, and Dark Beauty, amongst others. Outside of the academy, Abbie works freelance on lots of editorial and fashion shoots, and loves doing bridal work. Abbie says that every day she has to pinch herself because she gets paid to do something she loves. Abbie’s students describe her as “So lovely. She has a great style of teaching and gives awesome feedback and demos. She makes everyone feel good about themselves”.
